Again, welcome to this year’s Christmas Tree Decor Blog hop!
This year I decided to remake my green tree instead of my vintage style white tree. I try out a new theme every year for my white Christmas tree and last year I decorated the tree with a retro theme. However, my other “green” tree has been in need for some serious updating for a couple of years. I decided to update it this year and have a little fun with it at the same time by including handmade ornaments and woodland creatures.
The theme for my tree decor this year was inspired by nature around my own home. Back in the summer we had to have a pine tree cut down and I “inherited” several hundred new pine cones but also branches to cut up for wood slice ornaments. Add in the fact that we currently have a herd of deer living in the wooded lot next to us that love to walk through our yard several times a day – the barking dogs give them away each time- and hundreds of busy squirrels, bird, raccoons, and even a family of foxes. We get to share our outdoors with some beautiful creatures. So I created a rustic themed tree with some modern accents of course and lots of woodland creatures.
About 95 percent of the ornaments on this tree are handmade.
The miniature mason jars were found at Michael’s for these easy to make ornaments.
I made the pine cone and snowball garland that is one the tree and the fireplace mantel using just a glue gun and a roll of twine. I found bags of “snowballs” at a craft store and of course I already had the pine cones. Lots of pine cones.
There will be an full post on how I made all of the handmade ornaments later this week.
Now let’s check out the rest of the beautiful Christmas Trees!
Thanks so much for viewing my new rustic and modern Christmas tree – a little bit more rustic than modern – but it was so much fun to decorate this year.
